Dark Souls 2 E3 trailer shows demons sliced and soldiers diced


Dark Souls 2 is out and we’ve given it a verdict in our Dark Souls 2 review.

As part of Microsoft’s press conference at this year’s E3 they threw out a new trailer for Dark Souls 2. Tapping into the series’ fame for being ridiculously difficult and unforgiving, the trailer for Dark Souls 2 starts with our hero dying more than a couple of times, reinforcing the fact you will be facing these monsters again and again.

Oh, it does look fancy, doesn’t it?

As great as Dark Souls’ mechanics are – and they really are good, the combat is impeccably designed – it’s the game’s art that’s always grabbed me. I love what FromSoftware do with scale in their games; the creatures you face aren’t all humanoid in dimension and scale, and frequently you’re pitted against vast baddies. It just makes the world that bit more fantastical.

Along with the new video, Namco launched the game’s official site.

Dark Souls 2 is due for release in March 2014.
